Indian origin star Maulik Pancholy, best known for his roles in ’30 Rock’ and ‘Weeds’, is engaged to get married to boyfriend after nine years of dating.
The 39-year-old actor announced the engagement news on his Twitter page by posting a picture with his boyfriend at Taj Mahal.
“It only took 9 years but it’s official! Just got engaged at the Taj Mahal to Ryan Corvaia! YEEEESSSS!,” Malik posted.
Corvaia is the founder and owner of New York City-based catering and hospitality company Dish Food & Events.
Pancholy came out as gay in the November issue of Out magazine where he discussed his relationship with Corvaia.
“I just celebrated my nine-year anniversary with my partner. It feels like a nice time to be celebrating something like that, especially on the heels of the DOMA and Prop 8 decisions,” Pancholy had said at that time.
The actor, who currently voices the title character on Nickelodeon’s animated comedy series, had protested against Indian Supreme Court’s decision to uphold a law that criminalises gay sex.
